underlying zoning permits uses. in this case, it doesn't specify how often entertainment is closed, it relies on underlying districts, rc3 and 4, and there is also a clause that doesn't talk about uses but they say you should determine whether uses are permitted in these districts by looking at the nearest neighborhood commercial district and it regulates that use that's how it should be located in this area. in this instance along van ness, you have a big strip of retail that has a more coherent look to it than the neighboring nc districts, so when you are applying chromes for what happens on van ness eve you are looking at different districts with varying controls. this is something that the department has pointed out to you is an issue through an error. it was changed to this, referred to as the nc district in 2008, prior to that change, it referred to the c-2 district which is more come patible what we feel is appropriate on van ness. that's what we recommend that we make this change to go back to riverring to the c-2 district so we have the coherency and controls along this ar
Dec 3, 2010 2:30am PST
the control is currently in the definition of the rc district. it says commercial uses in this area should be permitted as described in the c2. so that's inconsistent with other places in the code where it refers to the nc district. so we feel there are a number of things pointing towards the which 2. and also you have should know that since we have made this change about whether the underlying zoning should refer to the nc districts, or the c2, we have only processed two conditional use authorization by this commission and both of those were approved, so there for we feel that the controlled that would allow this permissively are appropriate. and as mr. barns prescribed, the ordinance will be at the last use committee next week, so your recommendation is important today so you may have an opportunity to weigh in on the legislation. that concludes my report -- oh, one other thing, whether we are referring to the underlying nc or c2 only affects whether the uses would be permitted in this area. the other controls that go along with nc districts do not necessarily apply, it's only whether th

carefully about the terms that we use because of that. so, why does some language impede the understanding, lureen, of, of our field and the way we refer to people? well i think particularly now that we have this new recovery framework, people are holding on to the old language. and the new language really holds the fullness of the framework, it really shows the validity of the framework, it shows the reality of recovery. and so the fact people are holding on to that old language, is really impeding us from moving forward into this new framework. and daphne what type, what are we talking about in terms of the old language, the new language and, and the transition that we're trying to create? old language is using phrases like addict, junkie, user, substance abuser, calling people by, rather than calling people, people, then we're using terms that define them by an action and that is inappropriate. new language refers to a person, a john, a lureen, a carlos, daphne. we are people, first and foremost and we may be people with histories of substance use disorders or whatever term that we choo

since it was introduced to us and continue to support it. the main reason is because this is a process that uses purely waste, according to what we were told, rather than depending at any point on using what could be feedstock for human beings, so we feel that this is a model way to in fact make biodiesel. we also have had a long-term expectation that the port would be involved in insuring that alternative fuels would be available, especially for the trucking industry, since the court -- the port is a magnet for diesel vehicles. we are happy we have finally gotten to this point. i also am the chair of the board of the bayview hunters point community advocate, and we brought the original action that slowed us all down. we are satisfied with the community involvement process that occurred, and we wanted to be sure that they gave the framework to provide an opportunity for the tenant to really become a good neighbor with the community, and we feel that the changes that were just pointed out to you actually do allow for that good neighbor relationship to be built. thank you. commissioner f
